Late Payment Fee Policy
The Student Accounts Office reserves the right to assess late fees to all accounts (including undergraduate, graduate, professional studies, and doctoral) that have not been paid by the due date. Please note that non-receipt of an invoice does not constitute an exception to the late fee policy. The student is the account holder and therefore responsible for ensuring that payments are made on or before the due date regardless of the source of funds. The student is also responsible for forwarding student account information to other parties that have agreed to make payment (i.e., parents, sponsors, etc.).
Should accounts become excessively overdue, it is the policy of Manhattan School of Music to place the account on hold and suspend private lessons and other school privileges. Failure to submit payment after these steps have been taken will result in our office referring your account to a collection agency. Please contact the Student Accounts Office immediately should circumstances arise to interfere with tuition payments to the School.
Timely receipt of payment is considered to be:
- Checks delivered by mail where the envelope is postmarked by the post office on or before the tuition due date
- Wire transfers initiated on or before the due date
- Flywire payments with a status of "Guaranteed" (this means Flywire received your transfer) on or before the due date
- Payments submitted to an approved payment plan on or before the due date
Late fees will be assessed for outstanding balances owed to Manhattan School of Music as indicated below.

Attention Students expecting Refunds -- The Office of Student Accounts will hold college student refund checks for 21 days following its notification to the individual student that a refund is available for pickup. After 21 days, the check will be mailed to the student's billing priority address on record at the time the check was prepared. Please keep in mind that students are responsible for maintaining current contact information through their student account portal. More details on our office refund policy can be found in the "Tuition Refunds" section of the Student Accounts Office webpage.
